Construction Programme Management

NHS Property Services’ capital projects are designed to bring wide-ranging benefits for our customers and patients. From flagship schemes such as new hospitals and health centres to refurbishments and upgrades, we work with customers across England to provide improved and affordable healthcare locations, aligned to evolving clinical service and local health economy needs.

Capital projects fall into two main categories:

  • Landlord capital – These are typically small-scale projects to keep our buildings statutorily and lease compliant and in a good state of repair in line with our obligations as a landlord.
  • Customer capital – These are typically major multi-million pound projects, such as new buildings, extensions and major refurbishments, requested by our customers. Up-front funding is normally provided by NHS Property Services, but in some cases we work with third-party development partners.

This guide gives our customers an overview of how to access our capital funding for their projects – How to Access NHS Property Services Capital Funding
